    21700 Malkoff possibility

    Looks nice. I run M 61T, I am sure that would look great with the 21mm cell.

    The definitive Malkoff Hound Dog Super thread

    It's such a power hungry light that it runs better on 3 cells versus 2.

    E2 Hyper Throw vs mdx/m91T

    I really like M91T

    Can my OCD handle M91T on MD2 body?

    My M91T, don't know which rev it is, likely not the latest, doesn't power at all in an MD2. M61T is a better match for the MD2 overall and runs on full power.

    Cool White (5700K) Cree XP-L versus Neutral White (4000K 80 CRI) Cree XP-L

    The low 15 lumen mode is terrible, dim and poor color rendition. The middle mode is acceptable and the high mode is best. Seems like the brighter it becomes, the better color rendition it gets. I will keep it if I can adjust to the low mode.

    Cool White (5700K) Cree XP-L versus Neutral White (4000K 80 CRI) Cree XP-L

    I have both and can't figure out which one best reflects reality. Seems neither one does. My MDC cool white is a bit off of course like all cool whites but it's not nasty by any means. The 4000K CRI seems kind of off all also. It paints things a bit too much yellow while the above paints...

    MDC 16650 on 1x123

    A custom made 18350 body that I want to run either full power 3.7V 18350 and sometimes 123. with the MDC 3.4-6V head, of course I meant the 2xAA body with two L91s in it. They does power it on. So do Alkalines. It's obviously under-driven. I was aware of the thread, have it saved. I missed...

    MDC 16650 on 1x123

    Have an MDC 3.4-6V head. It runs well on a 18350 of course. Don't have a 2x123 body but wonder how well it will run on a single 123 primary. I was able to get it to fire on one but wonder at what voltage it cuts off. I also have the MDC 2.3-3.2V head and that should run better than the above...

    M61 and M61T Lux

    I see. I see the diameter is 26.5mm x 1.5mm - this is helpful.

    M61 and M61T Lux

    What's the highest percentage glass that's all clear and real tempered glass, like in the SF 6P series? The plastic thing that comes with MDx series is very soft, easy to scratch.

    Malkoff MDC 2xAA review

    I came to realize I don't like multiple modes in the MDC-AA. When the batteries are low, the modes do not function they way they are supposed to. You only get two modes, the low appears to come on second after high and is barely visible. The 2 modes that are visible appear to be identical...

    M61 and M61T Lux

    I stuck the M61T in MD4 body and indeed, it was much brighter and noticeably destroyed M61 on one cell - or even two cells. I think I just realized I was comparing M61T on one cell with M61 on two cells. And even then they were merely equal, with M61 having the same lux but a large hotspot...

    M61 and M61T Lux

    I am running M61T in MD2 / 18650 and M61, latest-greatest version in an MD3/2x18500. The lux of the latter M61 seems to be equal to lux of M61T. I always thought M61T had a much higher lux. Could it be that the dual cell configuration gives it that much more boost? M61 is very impressive. 470...

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Malkoff Hound Dog 18650 XT - how does its output differ from an earlier Hound Dog 18650? More throw I assume and less flood?

    Malkoff MDC 2xAA review

    I don't care for the MDC-AA due to its absurd sub-lumen low mode. MDC-2AA is way more useful. Plus easier to hold and greater runtime. I don't mind the 15-20 lumen "low" with L91, which is almost as bright as the medium mode with Alkalines. Additional thoughts: Great light, great tint, perfectly...

    Malkoff MDC 2xAA review

    I just ran the test again on L91s. Looks like it does have 3 modes, just that they are all way brighter. I would say the low mode looks like 20 lumens, the medium probably 75 and the high at least 300. I am guestimating here. There is no way the low is 5 lumens. Suppose everything works as it...

    Malkoff MDC 2xAA review

    L91s start pretty high, like 1.77V so combined you are looking at 3.5V. The web site specifically lists lithium primary as an option yet they don't generate the low mode and seem to be stuck in one mode.

    Malkoff MDC 2xAA review

    I tried 4 different sets of new L91s. None generate low mode. Seems to be only in one mode and it's bright. Tried NiMH and Alkaline - yes to low mode. L91s - no. BTW, discharged L91s generate low mode. As they say, it's not a bug, it's a feature.

    Were there multiple iterations of MDC? If so, what were the specs.

    Malkoff MDC 2xAA review

    So I removed the clip and the light feels much nicer. Lack of knurling is not a huge issue it seems. I installed fresh L91s (Lithium AA by Energizer) and could not get the light to come on in low, weird. Anyone else can substantiate this experience? Not that I can't deal with high only. Two...
